Historical Context of United Kingdom
The United Kingdom has been an important centre for artistic production for centuries. While it accrued considerable wealth from colonisation and the ascent of its Empire, it was also exposed to the cultural supremacy of other countries and continents. Throughout the contemporary era, Britain had been to a great extent eclipsed by the influence of its European neighbours on one side, and of the United States on the other. But towards the end of the nineteenth century, Britain became an important hub in the development of the avant-garde. This includes the Arts and Crafts Movement, a major movement setting the tone for artist-led organisations, groups and organisational co-operative types that would later become into a template of sorts for bohemian artists movements of the Twentieth Century. Major artistic movements in British modernism include for instance Vorticism, involving artists associated with the Bloomsbury group. Some notable British artists of the modern and contemporary period include Stanley Spencer, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Leon Kossoff, Frank Auerbach, David Hockney, Bridget Riley, Paula Rego - and in more recent years the YBA generation led by Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn, Chris Ofili and others.
Further Biographical Context for Estate Of Andrew Forge
Estate Of Andrew Forge was born in 1923, grew up during the 1950s and was inspired by the artistic culture of the time. Abstract Expressionism dominated in the 1950s as a primary method of painting, and explored ideas about the sublime and spirituality. Artists chose to focus on painting’s formal properties, and Action Painting took inspiration from the political freedoms of the United States, in opposition to the strictures of the Soviet bloc. Influential artists of this period included Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb. In later revisions, the contributions and efforts of female artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Louise Bourgeois have been acknowledged, amongst many other female creatives.
